Big Dipper Week!

Image from tirbd.com Things I'd Rather Be Doing is kicking off Big Dipper week today! Monday brings the bulk of the interviews with the band -- Gary Waleik, Bill Goffrier, Jeff Oliphant and Steve Michener -- while the days that follow will find me (and the band) looking at each of the band's four LPs (for the sake of scheduling, Boo-Boo will be included with Heavens, just as it was on my worn Homestead Records twofer CD) and the new material on Supercluster will be considered the band's fourth LP). Why not head over to the Merge store so you can have your own Big Dipper week? And don't forget about their upcoming tour dates!   More >
